    Since this is a Stephen King site I will put my two and a half cents in. My brother and I saw IT CHAPTER TWO in Dolby Atmos today. I liked Chapter One better. Two was very well done though cinematically, and the picture was sharp and colorful and crystal clear. I did NOT think it was too long. I did not find the explanations for Pennywise's actions clear enough. I enjoyed King's cameo, no wonder he's so rich! The seat shook nicely, and the theater was sparsely populated and smelled good being relatively new. I was never scared once, not even a little, although some of the scenes had a nice tenseness to them. Only one thing offended my sensibilities, but who cares? I will definitely buy the Blu-ray when released.

    Over and out.
    I'm sure if there is intelligent life somewhere out there in the universe, they are wise enough to stay away from us.

    And the people bowed and prayed, to the cell phone god they made...

    I loved it. I think Bill Hader really made the movie. I had some gripes with plot stuff but they did what they had to do to squeeze this into just two movies

    My thoughts... I actually liked it better than part 1.

    A few issues...

    Spoiler:
    Henry Bowers felt like a non-entity and accomplished nothing (besides giving Eddie a moment to shine) to the point that having him dead in part 1 would have left no real effect on the plot.

    The lack of Audra was also kind of annoying given that we missed out on "Bill's beat the devil" moment at the end.

    The humor at times was too much. Having Richie joke is one thing, the puppy scene or having pop music play while the leper vomits on Eddie was unnecessary.

    But...

    I liked the adults. No real weak links as opposed to the miniseries. I also liked how they were able to bring the kids back for flashbacks which is something that might have helped with the miniseries.

    The final confrontation with Spider-Pennywise was arguably the best of both worlds in at least capturing the feel of the book given how the battle of the minds would have been impossible to show on the screen.

    I saw IT on Thursday evening, 8:45 PM showing. The theater was only 25% full - very surprised given this is a special theater that has a Fenway Part Green Monster sized screen. I took my daughter - she's a senior. We were both thoroughly entertained. Sure there are some weaknesses, overall IT was great. I still enjoyed part one better, but then I enjoyed reading about the kids better in the novel as well. No surprise there. I like some of the minor changes.

    The tepid reviews and the words "jokey" have me not wanting to see this. Seems like it was a no brainer that the movie would be excellent but I guess they spent more time trying to cast than writing a good script. But I still might see it, I'm just bummed. It's weird they are doing publicity a week after the movie comes out...I heard chud is pronounced "chood" in it, is that correct?

    For the most part it's not much more jokey than part one was. There are maybe two moments that I thought were too much.

    The line about the mullet seemed very much out of context with the scene.

    Henry Bowers in general was useless. They might as well have killed him off in part 1 for all he did.

    The humor parts I felt that took me out was the whole dog gag and the music playing when the leper vomited on Eddie.

    Agreed, especially the latter. I have no idea where that came from or what it was supposed to imply.
